Stenciled Glass Ornaments

In honor of this week’s Crafty Cornucopia paint challenge, I thought I’d share another paint project with you {even though it’s Christmas-y instead of fall-themed}.

By now, I’m sure most of you have seen the incredible array of products I got to sample from Martha Stewart’s holiday paint line.  Of course, a certain little friend of mine wanted a piece of it all and I got no rest until I came up with a project he could do.  So, we picked up a pack of glass ornaments and I let him go to town.  Here’s what we came up with together:

- Martha Stewart glass paints, assorted colors
- Martha Stewart adhesive stencils
- Martha Stewart paint daubers
- glass ornaments
- ribbon

These were so easy to make that a four year old could do it.  Literally.

I let him choose his stencils and colors.  We stuck the stencils on {he liked it because they were like stickers} and then I showed him how to dab the paint in the “hole.”  He was so focused and did a really great job!!

Once the stenciling was finished, we let the paint dry, then stuffed the ball with some shiny red filler we had in our stash.  How fun is that?  Little Crafter is so incredibly proud of himself for making this, and quite frankly, I am too!  Pretty darn impressive if you ask me!

He agreed to let me play a little too, so I made this one with lots of snowflakes in white, silver, and aquamarine.

The possibilities are endless!  It was a really fun project for us to do together, which I always love.
We are having too much fun with all our “toys” from Martha Stewart and Plaid…be sure to keep watching for more projects we’ve made, especially during the Handmade Holidays series the first week in December!

Happy Crafting!
